    GOSNELL, Ark. (CNN) -- A preacher is accused of using a small video camera to spy on women. He faces charges in Arkansas and Mississippi.

    It's been more than a month since it was reported that new charges were pending against a traveling preacher from Olive Branch, already charged in his hometown for using a camera hidden in a writing pen to spy on unsuspecting women.

    Police in Gosnell, Arkansas discovered the pen while investigating a separate complaint by a woman secretly taped in a bathroom. They shared one of multiple videos allegedly shot by Sammy Nuckolls with detectives in Waldron, Arkansas. Jeremy Hunt with Waldron Police Dept. says, "It was actually in his computer in a file labeled 'Waldron.'"

    Police say that video was shot inside a church while Nuckolls was in a room with a female church member. Hunt says, "He stuck it in something at her feet in an attempt to view up her skirt."

    Police say the approximately 20 second video never actually shows anything. But the intent was enough for them to file charges based on the alleged victims complaint. Hunt says, "She actually came in here and she was pretty upset. The last place you'd expect something like that to happen."

    Nuckolls could be taken into custody at anytime as a result of the new warrant which may not help his already tarnished reputation as a traveling preacher.
